Santa Clara: a Shopping Haven

Are you looking to take some time off to shop while you're in Santa Clara? Perhaps you need some new clothes for a special occasion? Housewares to spruce up your home? Or a gift for an upcoming event? If you’re looking to shop for yourself or for gifts for friends, you are most likely going to find whatever you need (from a new suit of clothes or a dress to a new car) in Santa Clara’s many shops and shopping centers.

Santa Clara’s shopping centers attract visitors from all over the San Francisco Bay Area because of the enormous variety of options available within a few miles in the Santa Clara-San Jose area. The greater San Jose area is home to one of the nation’s largest and most successful indoor shopping centers, many smaller shopping areas, and adjacent to several nearby trend-setting shopping complexes. Whether you need something necessary in a pinch from one of the more utilitarian home improvement stores, or a fun souvenir to commemorate your visit to the Mission City, you won’t have to look hard to find something that fits the bill.

Shopping Centers in Santa Clara

Santa Clara has retail outlets and stores for avid and motivated shoppers. The most notable and locally famous is the Westfield Valley Fair shopping center. Located on Stevens Creek Blvd, and straddling the border of San Jose, Valley Fair has been a draw for local shoppers and international visitors for years. With more than 240 stores ranging from huge mega-retailers like Nordstrom and Macy’s, to the smaller boutiques and local retailers, Valley Fair truly has something for every taste. Specialty retailers like Brookstone, Swarovski, and Teavana make it easy to find a gift for that special someone.

Directly across the street, and technically in San Jose, CA, is the trendy Santana Row shopping center. This is a local favorite because of its high-end retailers, numerous fine dining restaurants, people-watching opportunities and outdoor European town feel. This Federal Realty property houses fashionable names such as Urban Outfitters, Salvatore Ferragammo, Gucci, and Anthropologie, in addition to the collectibles and housewares stores including Crate and Barrel and Z Gallerie. Maggiano’s Little Italy, Chili’s, Straits Café, and many other restaurants give shoppers a break from their day with a menu of delicious fare.

Santa Clara has many other smaller shopping centers and local shops as well, most within a short distance from the downtown area. Metropark, Lawrence Square Shopping Center, Rivermark, and many other smaller shopping centers give shoppers a chance to beat the crowds and find their items quickly and easily.

Everyday supplies for health and beauty, medical, and home items are easily available at Staples, Best Buy, Target, CVS, and Home Depot. All these stores and more are all located in Santa Clara. With a large resident population and an equally large visitor influx all year round, commerce in Santa Clara is brisk and most stores easily accessible in a short drive.  

Santa Clara’s Auto Row

Shopping for a new ride in Santa Clara is much easier if you make a trip to Stevens Creek Auto Row to start your search. Top name-brand automotive dealerships form a continuous row through a stretch of Santa Clara and San Jose and give auto shoppers the chance to compare their choices side by side. Stevens Creek Nissan, Honda of Stevens Creek, Stevens Creek Toyota, and Stevens Creek Jeep/Chrysler are among the name brand favorites along Auto Row and have served Bay Area customers by providing some of the most affordable new and used car deals for years. Luxury cars from Frontier Infiniti, Lexus of Stevens Creek, Porsche of Stevens Creek, and St. Claire Cadillac are also available to customers who are looking for a luxury ride.
